Our story

Since we began real estate investing in the 1970s, we've deployed more than a hundred million dollars across different sectors and partnerships. Over the last 15 years, we've developed a strategy of buying and selling real estate investments where demand has outpaced supply.


We were early investors
in self-storage

We identified the self-storage opportunity early, built a significant portfolio, and made a timely exit to ensure strong returns for our investors.


Next, we invested
in boat and RV storage

We replicated this success in the boat and RV storage space, and exited at the top of the market.


Our next investment type: Affordable Housing

We're now focused on filling the supply shortage in housing with affordable options such as RV parks, tiny homes, and modular homes.
